• Can I get eyelash extensions if I have glaucoma?


    Question:

    I am thinking of getting eyelash extensions, but I have been diagnosed with glaucoma. Is it safe to get these extensions?


    Answer:

    This is an interesting question. Eyelash extensions involve “gluing” extensions onto existing eyelashes. This won’t affect your glaucoma. However, keep in mind that if you have been diagnosed with glaucoma, some drops used to treat glaucoma can cause eyelash growth over time, which may eliminate the need for eyelash extensions. Check with your ophthalmologist about this.
